Fishing in the Big Pond: From Regional to [Inter]National

Louisa Curtis has chops. Her credentials come from years in the commercial photography industry. She now helps photographers refine their vision, target appropriate audiences and create/implement Internet-driven business plans.

A question she has been asked and is imminently qualified to answer so generously is: What do I need to know before I make the jump from a regional market to a national or even international market? Interested?

Here’s a teaser: Daunting? Remember this: everyone started somewhere.

Are you ready to take that next step up on the ladder to building your career?

Is the work good enough?

Are you up for the task?

What do art buyers want or more importantly, need?

Ask yourself three questions before moving into a larger market.

Growing your art business is like growing any business. Honing your craft and building your capabilities. One step at a time. Why create two sets of mailing lists for your clients? How to approach a conversation with an art buyer. What kinds of questions to ask? There is no such thing as a stupid question. Truly.

Explore the blog post [link below] for qualified tips from Louisa on how to get that job. The one you want. You’re welcome. Oh and she’s partial to champagne and Godiva.
